    "If your child has any learning disabilities, or special needs, stay clear of Ridgeview as there is not a large support system in place for such cases. As a caretaker for a child with disabilities who has attended this school, I saw little to no action implemented to effectively accommodate the child's needs. Instead of providing the adequate care to ensure the child was in a productive environment, the staff responded without a sense of urgency and seemed to lack respect, and even belief to/of the child's needs. The "resolution" that was provided only exacerbated the child's issues as these practices were poorly executed and in turn created an environment that isolated the child which opened a door for bullying and alienation due to the complete absence of tact and subtlety on the matter. This caused an extremely toxic reaction in the child that resulted in countless therapy sessions and psychiatric visits. I do not recommend this school for any parent/caregiver/guardian of a child that requires special attention due to physical or mental handicaps because from what I've seen, they will not receive it at Ridgeview Charter School."

    "Communication from the school is often confusing and disingenuous. The school website and numerous school publications state that joining and paying dues to the PTA is required of all parents. This is not true; the school and district cannot force a parent to join a private organization to attend a public school. Emails from parents to the principal often go unreturned, and communications from her are confusing and full of academic buzz words. It seems to us she is more concerned with impressing her district supervisors than running a high performing school. The IB/MYP continues to be an utter failure at teaching students basic middle school material - as evidenced by another year of under performing GA state averages on most CRCT tests, but the curriculum does excel at one IB priority: creating 'compassionate global citizens'. 'Global' is such a priority that classroom learning shuts down for three days every year while they run the RCS Olympic games and make students parade with foreign flags and cheer for foreign countries. Sadly, the USA is not invited to the Ridgeview Olympics. If we could afford a private school we would leave."

    "So they have recently added new administrators theirs this on guy who just gives iss or OSS for the dumbest reasons. The new school system is really messed up. The 8th graders had gotten silent lunch and that administrator went in the lunch room and said "if y'all talk say goodbye to your crct chances because your gonna get OSS." So the student went to get his lunch. He said thank you to the lunch lady and the administrator said "hey when your done paying for your food go to the wall and stand there." He also said "did I not speak Spanish?" The student said "wow really your gonna give me oss just because I said thanks to the lunch lady?" So he asked her and she said yes. He said "of my apologies." Like who gives iss or OSS for talking at lunch like at least give them detention."

    "RCS does have wonderful arts and sports programs - music, drama, chorus, and all types of athletics are a big part of each day and most communications sent home, but theses items seem to take a priority above core academics. The standardized test scores for RCS are usually at or below state average, so there is plenty of room for improvement and it is a real shame the more important subjects are not the dominate priority. There is also an over emphasis by the principal on school uniform and adhering to every little rule rather than focus on teaching the students. A Charter is supposed to provide a school more flexibility to teach in more creative and effective ways than state laws typically allow. It seems the charter at RCS is being wasted and so far we are disappointed."
